 Our Beavers - Salvation Army Kettle Community Contribution

The Beaver Colony

Beavers is a unique program of Scouts Canada that offers fun, friendship and adventure to youth ages 5-7 years old by providing interactive opportunities for outdoor activities, creative play, music, cooperative games, community projects and field trips and camp weekends. Beavers enjoy time with their colony friends, learn how to get along within a group and care for their community and develop their personal self-worth
Beavers are a vital part of the community in which they live and we incorporate many field trips and activities within the local community for the youth to experience and learn about the many important parts within their community. We sometimes have the “community” (community groups or individuals) come to us at our regular meetings on special theme nights.

Beaver Scout Promise:
I promise to love God and help take care of the world.

 

Beaver Scout Law:
A Beaver has fun, works hard and helps his family and friends.

 

Beaver Scout Motto:
Sharing, Sharing, Sharing

 

Beavers learn about co-operation and getting along with others through non-competitive games, crafts, music, campÔ¨Āres, and outdoor activities such as family camping and nature walks. The Beaver motto is "Sharing, Sharing, Sharing". Some things the Beavers have done:

•Overnight camp at Camp Attawandron
•Hikes and conservation walks
•Trail clean-up
•Recycle
•Swimming at the Rotary Centre
•Build Bird Houses, Rock Wall Climbing, Scavenger Hunts, LEGO Building, Beaver Buggy Races, Kiwanis Animal Farm Visit.

 
The fun and learning continues in 2016

Beavers have weekly evening meetings plus occasional weekend events. The Beaver Colony is lead by  volunteers from the community. All volunteers complete a screening process.
